I like going to ASP because I get to play with my friends, I get almost all As, and I get more help.
CAN After School Program Purpose Statements:
Teach students how to self-regulate their bodies and emotions
Assist students with developing their critical thinking skills
Give the time and attention for students to report how safe and supported they feel
Encourage homework completion and comprehension
Help students learn to enjoy reading
Provide an environment that supports the building of meaningful relationships
Connect community to school
Support the development of self-advocacy and tools for self-agency
CAN staff, interns, and volunteers partner with students to help them complete and comprehend their assigned homework each day
There are countless opportunities for students to participate in a huge range of additional activities, such as academic board games, science, math, language art, and other subjects, learn about their bodies & nutrition and more!
CAN's #1 goal in literacy is to help students develop a love for reading. When young people see themselves & others expressed in story, they are more likely to be self-motivated to keep reading and practice writing to share their own stories.
At most CAN locations, students eat a delicious and nutritious dinner. All CAN locations offer healthy snacks.
Interwoven throughout every program is a culture of role modeling mindfulness, resilience, and healthy interpersonal relationships. Students are given the language and tools they need to navigate the social world and better name and manage their emotions.
CAN staff partner with families, teacher, and administrators to ensure our shared students have the academic and social-emotional support they need to thrive both within and outside of school.
This program provides student-centered, transdisciplinary projects during CAN After School Programs in which students develop academic & life skills they will use within and outside of CAN's programs.

Have CAN's After School Programs Changed in Light of the COVID-19 Outbreak?
Yes- CAN's "After School" Programs have shifted to "Out Of School," as we provide support for our learners throughout the school day with virtual check-ins and safe, socially distant outdoor activities.
Ann Arbor Public Schools is starting out the school year virtually, so CAN will be present to help our families in any way we can to ensure students can succeed in this style of learning environment and to find ways to safely support our working parents within our capacity.
